Microsoft Silverlight Version 3 can only be installed on Macs with an Intel processor. Please check whether your Mac has an Intel processor: In the “Finder”, choose “About This Mac” in the Apple menu. The installed processor is shown in “Processor”, e.g. “1.83 GHz Intel Core Duo”.

If you receive a message saying that Microsoft Silverlight must be installed, although you have already done so, please proceed as follows:

Step 1
Is the latest version of Microsoft Silverlight installed?

Step 2
